It is curious that a bunch of Linear Algebra implementations are written as if it is Fortran all the way down. We can do better, and a functional implementation, with less mutability and more abstractions, may save efforts, space, and processor time. I will show pieces of easy-to-read code that works with vectors and matrices in a functional way. As an example, an efficient and practical implementation of PCA.
